September 2000 Meeting

Speaker:  Ron Gebhardtsbauer, Senior Pension Fellow, American Academy of Actuaries.
As Senior Pension Fellow for the American Academy of Actuaries, Ron Gebhardtsbauer is the actuarial profession's chief policy liaison on pension issues. He represents pension actuaries among federal regulators and legislators by providing nonpartisan assistance on legislative and regulatory questions.  Prior to his appointment at the Academy, Mr. Gebhardtsbauer managed the Retirement Practice of William M. Mercer's New York City office.  Previous to that, he was the Chief Actuary of the PBGC for many years.

Topic:  Social Security 2000: An Election Year Perspective
We have all heard, especially in this election year, that the Social Security program is heading toward a financial crisis.  Is there really a problem?  How serious is it?  What impact will proposals such as paying down the national debt or investing program funds in the stock market have on the economy and the program itself?  Mr. Gebhardtsbauer will provide us with his insight on all these questions, as well as his perspective on which presidential candidate's proposed solution appears to be more effective, based on a careful examination of the facts.
